So what is the point of BP?
I was thinking that it was to attract some decent folks to Grafton. If that makes sense to the rest of you. Let's go. :-)
Some ideas:

Events/days hosted at different locations around town.

- Jerry's
- Peter's
- peaceful assembly church

Who else wants to host?

John mentioned that the camp place on main street is friendly and maybe we can see what his place is like.

Kat and I are planning on being there, but we will rely on you guys for most of thee prep.

Oh yea jerry was picking the date.

Tom, Jeremy and I were discussing the date for 2014 and decided that the day after Porcfest didn't work out too well.

The Bardofest people are thinking of moving their date to July 4th (as yet unconfirmed) and we thought that making Burning Porcupine at the end of July would spread events out nicely.

Unfortunately that doesn't align with the full moon.  Suggestions?

Is there something wrong with having it during Peeping Season?

I know the point of Burning Porc is to be exactly like Porcfest and Bardofest, but the Fall can be nice in New England.

Won't it be a little chilly for campers?

We also have the Grafton Applefest the last Sunday in September.

  Stop bringing all the bad stuff about Grafton... It's always chilly or damp in Grafton.

Annnd... I don't think four hours on an afternoon should be called a festival, especially if there is no parade.

But I guess if you're going to call it a 'fest', it's not really a festival.  It can't be an 'apple party' either since its at the church.  Maybe you could call it an 'apple social', then you guys could probably handle a social and a fest because neither of those are very big.

"Come for Grafton's Apple Social and stay for Burning Porc."

Now look, look, look here.... a roasted pig with an apple in it's mouth as the feature meal event.... I know, fucking genius, right?

Baked apples are good, especially with brown sugar.

I guess that would depend a lot on what what else was happening.

He's tried to hide it, but he could have the dreaded Curmudgeon gene.  The crotchety stage is only the beginning. Be on the lookout for use of words like "whippersnapper" and a marked increase of "back when I was your age" stories.
